With four minutes left and the Chicago crowd ready to explode, John Lucas III cleared out against LeBron, did a lil’ herky jerky dance on the King, and canned a fadeaway in James’ mug. It was a capper on one of those nights when everything goes right. Lucas III has this weird complex about him where he truly believes he’s big time, and for a little while last night, we kept yelling at him to stop shooting. But eventually, you just gotta enjoy the ride. Dude went off for 24 big points, hit contested pull-ups all over the court. Without Derrick Rose, most figured this would be Miami’s night. But everyone outside of James and D-Wade left their games on the bus, and Chicago walked away with another W, 106-102. The Bulls took turns hitting run-killing gems all night, and they needed it as LeBron (35 points) and Wade (36 points) scored more than 35 apiece for the first time since coming together … Rodney Stuckey has quietly been doing his thing lately (20-plus in six of his last seven). He had 35 more in Detroit’s 12-point win over the Kings … The Clippers ran away from Atlanta by 14 behind 25 from Mo Williams despite Blake Griffin and Chris Paul having perhaps their worst outing as teammates (combined 25 points). You know, call us crazy, but next year the Clippers need to go after Mike D’Antoni. Could a threesome of D’Antoni, CP3 and Quake get any better? The league’s best pick-n-roll coach with the league’s best pick-n-roll duo that’s just dying to get away from the man calling the shots right now? Of course, because it makes so much sense, book it down that it never happens … Nate Robinson exploded for 20 and 11 dimes, but missed a shot at the buzzer and Boston escaped the Bay with a two-point win … And the Suns continued their “No one knows how we’re doing this” run with a 120-111 beatdown of Utah. Channing Frye had 26 points and nine boards … Vermont and South Florida both won to enter the field of 64, beating Lamar and Cal respectively. Another Pac-12 team is kicked to the curb … So are you ready for one of the best weekends of the year? Tell us why and win some free gameday snacks … Keep reading to see what unexpected people brought the Lakers a W …
